retailers are giving consumers what they want. they make in terms of the deals do you get a better deal on these days? people ask me that all the time because they see coverage and say do i have to shop today at these hours to get this price or can i wait and comparison shop and get two weeks from now? >> certain deals will only be available at certain times and we will see that from different retailers but what we are experiencing is the evolution of the holiday shopping season. black friday and cybermonday arkie holidays the we are seeing it stretched out longer than ever. walmart kicked off a holiday shopping season on line november 1st with a deal starting then, kicking off cyberweek tomorrow with 200 daily deals that will go until next friday, december 6th. lot of retailers are jumping on that ship, doing things like a lead deal for our lead deals you can only get in the store but doing that on line. what is happening is retailers
are facilitating the ability for consumers to shop anytime they want anywhere. dagen: we talk about walmart and show the stores and a lot goes for major retailers but so much of their business is online and stores are careful about making sure there is overlap and coordination between what is happening in the store and online. >> a lot of times but store's apps will help you if you are shopping in-store but we are supposed to see over $600 billion november and december for holliday, $55 billion of that coming from ecommerce. significant numbers are on line. dagen: the new iphone, the new ipad devices from apple, the new x box and placed asian. how much does that help drive overall sales? >> electronic our top category for the holiday season and play station iv and x box i ken out in last couple weeks driving sales.

downward pressure. we went up in the middle of november by the usual bluster of refinery problems and exports but very available supply and great advantage. dagen: do you think -- how much many extra is america saving compared to a year ago? does that really helps sales? the retailers would like to hope so but i doubt it. >> hard to tell. sales were helped more via mania than anything else. we calculated $2 billion more for consumers to spend that the gasoline this november, whether that translates into sales, walmart or costco, i don't know. we will see. they have more money and more money to spend in terms of less
money for fuel plant any thanksgiving since 2010. dagen: in the past we talked about how cheap north american crude-oil is and how cheap u.s. crude is because we are producing so much here. is there anything that will get in the way of that trend and also how does the iran deal plate into that? it is less important than it would have been a year ago. >> the trend for north american food production continues unfettered for a while. you would have to see crude oil prices drop by $25 a barrel, threatening the profitability of the sale price. as far as iran and other things go we will have an opec meeting left -- next week and no one is paying attention to it in north america because north america is more insulated. we are producing more crude, added additional crude to counteract the 1.5 million
barrels a day we lost when sanctions went into effect on iran in july of 2012. we are becoming much more insulated against horrible things happening in the middle east. dagen: should we be celebrating in a more time? >> there are a lot of things to celebrate and be happy about. it feels good, it will continue through 2014 but as the giants fan, the giants lost and the cowboys won. i don't have that here today. dagen: that is one thing we can agree on, we both paid the cowboys. breaks my heart that they won. >> it absolutely does. it is satan's team. dagen: it was great to talk to you, thank you so much. dagen: let's talk about some sports, jason kidd paying their
